“WTF…my…how I would like to have words with the bitch that left that poor baby; what if nobody had seen her leave the box, the poor little pup would have surely died. I guess this makes me so flaming mad because I have a chihuahua, who is my best friend, where ever I go, he’s there with me; he’s the only one, out of my dogs that my horse actually likes! No animal deserves an end like this could have been. So if anybody knows who did this, please contact the number below; if an animal is ill, there are way’s & means to deal with it, you don’t just leave it in a bloody box to die a slow painful death. I hope this bitch has nightmares every night about leaving that baby…I hope karma really fxxxs with her head!!”
It was on Tuesday that a blond haired woman between 5’2″ and 5’6″ got out of a late model silver Chevy SUV carrying a small box and walked to the side of the Frankfort Sewer Department on Kentucky Ave. towards the river.
A short time later, the woman returned to her car without the box and left.
According to wkyt.com, witnesses immediately went over to the area and picked up the box. In it was a tiny female chihuahua puppy no more than five weeks old.
Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying the woman. The woman faces second degree animal cruelty charges if found guilty.
Meanwhile the little puppy is being cared for at a foster home for the Franklin County Humane Society where she is now being treated for Parvo. One of the women responsible for the puppy’s rescue is hoping to adopt the adorable canine once she gets well.
Did the woman who was seen leaving the puppy at the sewer department abandon the puppy because the pup was sick? Parvo is a very contagious virus transmitted from dog to dog and can be fatal for puppies. It is very important to have puppies inoculated against the virus early in life.
It is never permissible to abandon an animal because they are ill. There are many options available to pet owners, other than leaving a defenceless animal to languish in pain until they die.
The disease presents with vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and lethargy. Early treatment increases the survival rate.
If you have any information on the identity of this person, please call the Frankfort Police Department at (502) 875-8523 or call Crime Stoppers at (502) 875-8648.
